Ritual on Valencia is looking for Baristas! 

 
We're preparing to reopen Ritual Valencia by mid-August so we're looking for help in our newly remodeled space! We will be looking for new baristas to help enliven our cafe! Our Valencia Street cafe provides a fast paced work environment so the ability to multi-task while maintaining a positive and friendly attitude is very important to us. 
 
We're an eclectic bunch that consists of musicians, artists, crafters and everyone in between, but we all share a passion for coffee. We enjoy fun and creative conversation while we cup some of the finest coffees!
 
Please submit your resume to jobs@ritualroasters.com or bring your resume to 1026 Valencia St.
HOMEMADE COLD BREW COFFEE - YUM!
posted on May 12th 2014 at 18:53 by

If you like cold-brewed coffee—or good iced coffee drinks—you'll love the elegant Mizudashi Cold Brewer. It’s a cinch to use: Simply place 115 g medium-ground coffee into the mesh filter.  Set the mesh filter into the carafe.  Add enough cold water through the filter to saturate all the coffee and stir.  Add the remaining cold water to the carafe.  Secure lid and place in the  refrigerator for 12-18 hours. When it's ready, pull the filter out and serve over ice. No need to dilute and clean up is a snap!

 

Brewer’s Tip:

We recommend a higher dose of coffee than normal to achieve a brew that will be enjoyable over ice: Around 115 grams of coffee per liter of water has been most enjoyable for us.

Dear friends,

It was ten years ago that we turned 1026 Valencia Street into the Ritual that you know and love. Thanks to the thousands of trips you loyal customers have made to get your morning coffee or settled into one of our comfy couches to cruise OKCupid, Ritual needs a little sprucing up.  OK, more than a little.  A lot, actually.  In the coming weeks you'll see the back of the cafe tucked behind a wall.  The coffee bar will remain open.  The friendly baristas who know your name and your drink are already getting it started for you.
 
If you have questions or concerns or brilliant ideas for us, I'd love to hear it. And don't worry, the coffee will still be the best.
 
xoxo
Eileen
